QX17.03 – Viscount Garnock

Query Corner – top page

I am trying to investigate more about a Viscount Garnock (he may have also been known as David Lindsey-Bethune) who was the first private owner of K4 The Great Marquess. What you may also be aware is that he also had work experience with the Union Pacific Railroad crewing the 4-8-8-4 “Big Boy” out of Cheyenne. Sadly that is all that I know about his experience there. However, I see from a further internet search that he also gave a talk to the Sheffield Branch of the RCTS in the late 1950’s talking about his time in the US and I write today to see if you have any further information on this? Photos, stories, any known magazine articles etc would be really interesting to see. (Matthew Brown)
